I stay in a lot of Mercure hotels and most are very good but this hotel is a sad exception. The staff are great, food good but the building is terrible. It must once have been a boarding school or maybe a mental hospital I think, but the building was wrecked in the the 1980's. The interior is a shambles - full of cheap 1980's faux brass and dodgy patterned carpets. Horrid.
I suffered several rooms! One with wafer thin walls, one in an outhouse that smelt as though someone had died in it and a third one with broken blinds, filthy windows, a wardrobe door that fell off in my hand, used soap in the shower, no tea tray, stained carpet and a remote control that needed new batteries.
For the infirm, there's no lift and I had to scale more flights of stairs to get to my room than I care to remember,
All of the staff I spoke to were charming and my late night snack and breakfast were great but this hotel is a shambles and completely unmanaged. I can't recommend it and I'm very surprised its part of Mercure.
